How stiff is your......cable

Ok, so I need to get a few power cables and I'm all for getting a better than stock, but I have a Signal power cable that is almost unbendable and needs 12-18" clearance to make a turn or the cable will torque my amp's power supply port - unacceptable......

So....do upgraded cables exist that are not so rigid?

    Sure. Get a Shunyata power cable. Aside from being some of the best at different price points, they are flexible.

    That is a step up from entry level cables. I started with the $95 Venoms on my amps and was floored by the improvement.

    Now for amps they have the Venom HC at $295.

    If anyone is willing to wait until they are back in stock, this coupon code still works at Upscale Audio for PS Audio products, I just checked. I used it three times last year on AC5 cables and saved $$$.

    He posted this back in April of 2018. Thanks @gmcman
